In this impressive anthology, internationally acclaimed curator and director Catherine de Zegher (° 1955, Groningen) compiles 27 influential essays on women artists from the numerous books she has written and edited throughout her career. Like many of de Zegher’s previous projects and books, Women’s work is never done promotes the feminine principle, showcasing the work of female artists from across the world. Though her approach to art often has a global reach, de Zegher directs her attention deeper, to the intimate and the relational, to the specific work and the distinctive project of each artist.
